I just keep loving her for who she is, instead of mourning her struggles. And YAY for you Mama, for going the extra mile for him now! You're giving him a head-start that not every child gets. People won't understand, but that's ok. You're his Mommy and always will be - we didn't want our children to have difficulties, but we're doing everything that we can from this point forward to give them the best life possible!! You can do it, and I'll bet his progress blows you away.
Thanks Mama! It is hard, and we are trying as much early intervention as we can, we found a prek through our public school that will come to the house, and work with him, along with his speech and Occupational therapist.

I really needed to hear this, its just been such an overwhelming day.
